Field Storage Location

I'm importing a lot of content from another CMS into Orchard. I have a custom type with the Media File Picker field that I'm need to link to documents. I cannot figureout where field information is stored in the database.

Field data is stored in Orchard_Framework_ContentItemVersionRecord table Data column as XML.

Field metadata is stored in Settings_ContentPartFieldDefinitionRecord table Settings column as XML.

If you meant Media Library Picker Field, it keeps references (IDs) to Media (Image, Audio, Document etc.) items in the Orchard_Framework_ContentItemVersionRecord table. Real file reference is kept in Orchard_MediaLibrary_MediaPartRecord table.

Good luck!

That worked great except that the ítems don't show up in queries/projections. They will appear if I go and resave an ítem. I must be missing something on the import.

Field values are also stored in some Orchard_Projections_<Field Type>IndexRecord tables, which are used in queries.
